i've been using solostream's wp-davinci theme for a while now, and love the ad placement capability. i just started using adrotate and got a little discouraged when i couldn't use adrotate short codes in some of the ad placements provided by the theme, plus i didn't want to customize my theme's templates.
learned about this via a friend, so i just downloaded, installed, and activated this plugin.
voila! the ad rotate short codes now can be used just like i can use them in posts, pages, and widgets. nice and simple!
